I hold advanced degrees in Government/Philosophy from Claremont Graduate University and I taught for a number of years at both CSU Fresno and St. Mary's College. I can teach and tutor in American Government, Constitutional Law, Western and American Political Philosophy. I also hold a certificate as a Great Books Leader Training Program which qualifies me to teach Great Books seminars and classes.
I like to teach Socratically, which is to say that I find that the question and answer, attack and defense that takes place is a proven method for illuminating a difficult text or subject. I am a firm believer in the process of shared inquiry between teacher and student.
If you are up to the challenges posed by this kind of instruction, i.e. you are eager to confront one who is skilled at playing "Devil's Advocate" across a wide range of subjects, I could be the guy for you.
